The December issue of LRO is on sale now!


One of the most common questions asked when someone buys themselves a Land Rover Defender is: ‘What’s the biggest engine I can fit?’ Well, size isn’t everything, but how about a 5.9-litre Cummins engine. Actually, how about tuning that engine into a snorting lump spitting out 440bhp and almost 1000lb ft of torque? That’s what Andy Griffiths has under the bonnet of his Defender, read all about it.

On top of that we have: something old – a stunning Tickford Series I rebuild; something new – Range Rover Velar tested; something out-sourced – G-WAC pre-production Discovery rebuild; and something blue – a class-winning challenge truck.
